This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare find; a stunning, made in England, hand carved solid sterling silver with 18kt gold floral design elements - Circa 1850.  The dial is embellished with a small antique brass pocket watch balance wheel and large ruby jewel - then it is coated with a thick layer of epoxy resin.  The dial is mounted to a 2" whorl and 47 Swarovski crystal rhinestones are applied (w/2-part epoxy glue) to the perimeter of the dial and inside the design. All components, including a 1.75" polished brass clock gear and gold plated bead spacer and findings are mounted to the Cobalt Blue Shaft with 2-part epoxy glue.

The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges. The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with a forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. .
This is a wonderful light and rim weighted spindle that spins great.
